  • The site is quite far from the heart of Budapest since it takes a (HEV 5) commuter train access in 15-20 minutes and get next to an old Roman amphitheatre. Then you must still walk about 200 meters along a fast track to find the entrance of the Museum and the site. Visitors are very rare which allows to better appreciate the visit without be oppressed by the crowd of some tourist sites. Some reconstructions, including the House of the painter, better to imagine the richness and importance of this city, from the time of the Roman occupation, at the borders of its vast Empire. In the end of September, it was nice to enjoy the Sun and the blue sky on this site. Finally, a small museum to discover also the archaeological pieces found on the site as well as the operation of the thermal baths in Roman times.

  • This is a really fascinating site, very large, apparently well preserved ancient roman town. I was impressed. Plenty of detailed information, and a tremendous amount of ruins. If you save the invoice ...  read more »
  • The best part is the ruins, which are densely laid out and easy to see. It is very impressive to see the size and number of ruins in this location and in the neighboring area. 
  • Expansive indoor and outdoor exhibits with really cool artefacts, with English and and Hungarian descriptions. An activity room where you can spend hours making tiger mosaics (that'll never be as good as ours!) Very empty on a weekday afternoon at the beginning of July.
  • Well preserved Roman ruins. Quite fun!
  • Köszönöm Varga Renáta tanárnõnek, hogy elhozott ide.
  • Take a quality time-travel!
